WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 1, 2018 -- The only 3-year-old in the field, Mission Accepted took it to his elders with a powerful uncovered move that carried him to victory in Monday's feature at The Meadows, a $13,000 Conditioned Trot.

Mission Accepted entered the race off a victory in the $53,100 Ohio Breeders Championship and was hammered down to 3-5 as a result.

He looked every bit the part, blowing by Top Dollar for Dave Palone mid-way down the backside and defeating him by 4-1/2 lengths in 1:54.1. Media Buzz completed the ticket.

Jeff Conger trains the son of Manofmanymissions-Witty Girl, who now boasts $322,024 in career earnings, and owns with Knox Services Inc. and David Wills. It was one of three wins for Palone on the 13-race card.
